Bee Pollen is one of the richest and purest natural foods ever discovered, and has an incredible nutritional and medicinal value that has been known for centuries. Abundant for its vitamins, minerals, amino acids, protein and more.
No other food on earth offers such a broad spectrum of nutrition so naturally. All over the world honeybee pollen is recognized not only as an ideal food source, but as a food source with wide-acting medicinal properties.
Fresh Bee Pollen should be stored in the FREEZER to maintain freshness.
The bee pollen granules can be sprinkled over salad or cereal, added to yogurt, or smoothies or eaten as is.
In Sonoma County we place pollen traps on the beehives starting in Feburary and take them off mid August. The Spring Pollen is soft and sweet and by August the pollen has a more robust taste.
Adults: Start with 1 tsp. in the morning (1/2 hour before breakfast) followed with some water, juice or milk. Increase your intake every day by a few grains until reaching 2 tsp. a day (10 ml). For normal daily intake, you may take up to 1 tbsp. (15 ml) daily.
The dictionary definition of raw honey is honey as it exists in the beehive or as obtained by extraction, settling or straining without adding heat. Heat is used to pasteurize commercial honey, but natural raw honey is the specialty of smaller gourmet apiaries like ours.
One very important thing to note about honey, however, is that it should never be fed to infants under 1 year old. This applies to all honeys the infant may not capable of handling some of the properties of honey.
